Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

More cause and effect

What does it mean for today's trade from a technical aspect?
Before taking the trade and before market has opened:

1) we had a down in the start of the week
2) Wednesday turned and was green as well yesterday
3) NO new highs were produced though
4) High resistance is still to find above (9633)

So today's trade should be from the technical aspect 9:00 to 9:30 long
then 9:30 to 14:30 short

We will see

Friday trade

Dax short 09:30 to 14:30

entry @ 9585
exit @ 9591
result - 6 points

GFIs1

edit: quite a dull trading day!
VERY low volume (IB not even got 7,5k contracts in 30 minutes)
Yesterday the peak volume @14:30 was > 17,5k in 30 min.
Looks like we will not get some real moves today: @ratfink - stay with the 2 pints - and do not touch any keyboard.

Lol, just checked in and found your message, looks like I missed nothing in the Dax today! I expected a tough week between these trends but this week takes the cake! Had a very enjoyable software-keyboards time, looking forward to pushing some real triggers next week. Congrats on a good one and wishing you a great w/e. Two or Three Pints beckons! Cheers

Travel Well

I would recommend to use 30 min, 4h and daily chart for direction - and to
set the stop wide enough to be out of noise.
